This is a beautiful card and I love your use of the wrought iron punch. I too am wondering how you lined it up so nicely for the side strips. :confused: Will have to start practicing with mine ... into my favorites it goes!! TFS

To use the punch in a strainght line, cut a strip of paper about 3/4" wide and however long you need it. Take the guard off the punch carefully. (The plastic thing that helps you position the punch on a corner) Turn the punch upside down as you are punching so that you can see the punch being made. Punch your first heart. I start my next punch when I can see the previous one in the "V" outside the heart part of the scroll. If you do it, you'll understand what I am trying to say. Practice on scrap to find the look you want.
